This week is ‘Books Without Romance’. This was harder than I thought it would be, most of what I came up with were children’s books or ones I didn’t like that much… Does that say something about me?:

5) A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin:

409207Sure, there are a few relationships in the books but it’s not really about romance, and I don’t really think of the couples as being romantic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) Boo by Neil Smith:

Just for reference I don’t really like this book, and it’s number 4

because, while I’m think it doesn’t have romance, I’m not

 

completely sure. It’s about a kid in heaven, who died from being shot at school so…. fun?

 

 

 

 

 

3) Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll:

24213Another one I don’t really like, but it was the first book that I thought of.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien:

Another one I’m not so fond of, I’m seeing a pattern here. I don’t think it has a romance5907 in it. Does the Lord of the Rings … the books not the film… have romance, I haven’t finished them yet?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1) Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling:

Who reads this book and automatically thinks romance? Sure there are one or two couples in it – Dursleys – but they’re not in it very long and romance isn’t the first thing that comes to mind about them. And it’s a book I like this time.
